8 Days in Bangkok, Thailand

Posted in Adventures by Farah Ramos on March 5, 2012

Feb. 21 – Feb. 29, 2012

I have to admit… my 8 days in Bangkok has got to be the most interesting adventure I’ve had in my life! I got a tiny glimpse of how to be an independent traveller. Most of the time I was with my best friend, Gino Verona, but a more significant part of it was me… exploring the city alone.

Here’s the VIDEO BLOG that Gino did! The white thing on my face is i-White! Part of my rituals before going to bed is to put some on my face. Anyway, hope you enjoy watching the video!

…why THIGHLAND? I keep pronouncing “Thai” as “thigh.” Haha! πŸ˜›

OUR DESTINATION:

Gonna get another stamp, yey!

FARAH and GINO ready to EXPLORE Thailand!

Went to GRAMMY’S PLACEΒ in SUKHUMVIT on my first day in BKK!

Thai MRT – with TVCs playing.

CHATUCHAK WEEKEND MARKET! —– shopping!!!

MILK TEA ICE CREAM! Sooooo yummy! A must-try!

SIAM PARAGON

…while waiting for my high school friend, Hannah Landan, I went around Siam Paragon. I chanced upon MAC’s shopping-themed in-store display. The idea is that you can get all made-up by their make-up artist and take photos around the area. Of course, I won’t just pass by… I had to take photos inside! πŸ˜€ It’s like shopping a whole bunch of MAC cosmetics! (oh, I wore the neon top I bought in Khao San road! I was on tourist mode, haha!)

ROXY in-store display. So cute!

This one! I just love the statement. And yeah, exactly what I wanna tell YOU.

A photo with the beautiful Hannah Landan:

Monday night in BKK. Went to meet a new friend in PHAHOLYOTHIN. We went to a pub to have a few drinks with other friends – Thai, Spanish, and Americans. But before that, I had dinner by myself at KUM POON. I ordered Stir-fried Rice with Salted Egg, Roasted Chili & Fried Shrimps and of course Thai Iced Tea. It was delicious so I had to order an extra rice.

Last day in BKK, Thailand. Gino and I decided to dine at REFLECTIONS — a Thai restaurant located at TERMINAL 21. Terminal 21 is an airport-themed mall.

FARRENT FARRENT – where I bought my birthday heels! I met the owner of the store and took a photo of her. She’s the nicest! Her business partner designs the shoes, awesome right? And the prices are reasonable — 1,000 baht for designer shoes? Not bad!

For the last time (just for this trip) in SIAM PARAGON.

Interesting BITS based on my experience:

βœ“ I look like Thai people.

βœ“ Traffic is crazy but Thai people are respectful enough not to over-take.

βœ“ You can go shopping EVERYWHERE — at the sidewalk, malls, etc. And it’s cheap!

βœ“ Be ready to walk everywhere! It is hot in Thailand but it is bearable (in my personal opinion).

βœ“ Lady boys are everywhere. And they look good!

βœ“ MRTs can be jam-packed but people don’t cut in line, and they patiently wait for their turn.

I have to go back to Thailand because…

I haven’t seen the ELEPHANTS.

I haven’t seen a MUAY THAI FIGHT.

I want to go to Chiang Mai and Phuket.

More shopping!!!

So yeah, where’s the NEXT STATION?
